Researcher Niamh Fahy awarded the Artist Development programme by the European Investment Bank
Congratulations to CFPR Research Associate Niamh Fahy for being awarded the Artist Development programme by the European Investment Bank under the theme of (De)construction of History.
The award involves a residency in Luxembourg under the mentorship of Finnish Artist Jorma Puranen. The “Finissage” of the residency will take place in June, culminating with an exhibition of the work produced.
The Artists Development Programme (ADP) is a residency and mentorship programme in Luxembourg organised by the EIB Institute. The ADP offers emerging European visual artists under the age of 35 the opportunity to develop their practice in a high quality professional context without any material constraints. It involves the creation of an art project under the mentorship of an internationally renowned artist. The mentors provide an exceptional tutoring and networking opportunity for young artists, while the exhibition of works from the project at the EIB premises adds the credibility of an established setting.
Finnish photographer Jorma Puranen is the mentor of the 2019 and 2020 editions. Previous mentors of the programme are leading British visual artist Darren Almond, Polish conceptual artist Mirosław Bałka and renowned British abstract painter Callum Innes.
